Fretblanket - The Modern Man lyrics
Tell me I'm your everything All that you could need A saviour and a hero Lie to me at least ;) Tell me I need challenges A life full to the brim And a chorus line of motivators To get me by and in. I could do with a break A holiday A stretch of yellow sun I need to hear the ocean It keeps me safe from harm I love the way I feel the earth beneath my feet The feeling I'm being swept along with it Give me all your troubles I can take the strain I have never sensed it (?) I can feel no pain. Watch me from a distance See me buckle and break Knowing it would happen- Knowing your escape What about the today? The Modern Man And I've come for my Times Nothing to declare except this fantasy of mine. You make it too late Save myself Stop the other lot To kill the killer instinct Suffocate the lot Give me everything... Give me everything (you've got) Can't get through, With mouth open and mind closed. Can't get through, With mouth open and mind closed. I still have tomorrow I can wait that long I don't have to sing a wrong note Or run out of breath before. I have heard the angel speak Crawling on all fours I don't listen to myself I can't hear me anymore. I see the darkened skies Crashing to the earth I don't have much to myself I can't stand it any-more!
